That said, if you get the broomstick down to about shoulder height, and concentrate the weight on the ends, it seems to work for most people. Not sure about 8 year olds, but it holds for most people it seems. And no need to buy anything yet (I think most people make their own staves anyway).
If you really had to buy something, look at getting a one of a set of doubles, since those are usually shorter.
